The good father's main message was clear: Catholicism had the Truth while all other religions worshiped wrong god(s). The Jesuit had arrived at that conclusion by comparing the ideals of his religion to the realities of all the others.

Certainly the New England Transcendentalists - Ralph Waldo EmersonĀ . In an earlier Puritan age, the Boston Brahmins would have been ministers; in the 19th century, they became professors, often at Harvard.

Certainly the New England Transcendentalists - Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and their associates - were inspired to a new optimistic affirmation by the Romantic movement. In New England, Romanticism fell upon fertile soil. Transcendentalism was intimately connected with Concord, a small New England village 32 kilometers west of Boston. Concord was the first inland settlement of the original Massachusetts Bay Colony. Hutchison, The Transcendental Ministers: Church Reform in the New England Renaissance (New Haven: Yale University Press, 1959), is still the best source for the religious roots of the controversy between younger and older Unitarians. Emerson makes the distinction between the Reason and Understanding in his Divinity School Address of 1838.

This book, awarded the Brewer Prize by the American Society of Church History, is a study of the efforts of the Transcendentalists of the New England Renaissance to reform the Unitarian Church. Scholarly interpreters have, in general, agreed on the basic religious orientation of the Transcendentalist Movement. Mr. Hutchison, however, believes that it was far more than a tendency to appraise the universe in terms of an intuitive faith. Most of the men closely associated with the Movement in New England were Unitarian ministers, and he has concentrated on their attempt to apply transcendental thinking to theology and to the everyday problems of the parish ministry. At the same time he has produced a sympathetic appraisal of the conservative Unitarian position in his review of the so-called Transcendentalist Controversy.
